Teenage striker Ched Evans struck a stunning late winner as Norwich City claimed a 2-1 success over Cardiff City at Ninian Park.
Evans opened the scoring 15 minutes into the encounter, before the home side equalised through Gavin Rae.
But the 19-year-old, on loan from Manchester City, took the game by the scruff of its neck on 88 minutes, powering forward to fire home.
The visitors broke the deadlock after Dion Dublin dummied Ryan Bertrand's cut back, allowing Evans to slot home from the edge of the area.
Cardiff levelled just before the break when Rae coolly finished from Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink's pass.
The game looked to be heading for a stalemate, but Evans had other ideas; surging forward with the ball and then hitting a glorious strike into the top corner - extending his side's unbeaten run to 12 league matches.
